Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Millions of people suffer chronic neurodegeneration, leading to Alzheimer's disease and other dementias. Millions more suffer acute cognitive impairment from sleep deprivation, stress, circadian disturbances, and psychi
atric disorders. Many medication side… more
Abstract:The primary objective of this project is to design and develop a rootkit detection system that also has the capability to protect itself. AFCO Systems Development (ASD) proposes to advance the state of system security monitoring technology and meet its objective by developing a PCI card that… more
Abstract:Computer systems are lacking adequate security properties as demonstrated by the increase in system failure and service disruptions over the last few years. In response to an evolving threat environment AFCO Systems Development (ASD) proposes an adaptable and field upgradeable Global Information… more
Abstract:AFCO Systems Development's (ASD's) solution will protect a host system by using various autonomic techniques. These techniques will resist, detect, respond, and where possible, repair the damage caused by an adversary. Current technology does not provide the type of protection that is necessary… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Many human diseases can theoretically be treated by injection of healthy or engineered cells into damaged tissue, where ideally they will engraft and remodel the damaged tissue into healthy tissue. However, numerous obs
tacles stand in the way of this… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Infection surrounding metal implants is a common and sometimes devastating cause of implant failure in a number of fields including oral, craniomaxillofacial (CMF), orthopedic, and cardiovascular surgery. These infectio
ns, which arise from the establishment of… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, 86% of adults over 70 years have at least moderate periodontitis and over a quarter have lost their teeth, which has serious repercussion on healt
h and quality of life. Because of bone loss… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Approximately 500,000 bone-grafting procedures are performed each year in the United States (Boden, 2002). Autologous iliac crest bone graft continues to be the gold standard because it provides the three essential elem
ents for bone formation: osteoprogenitor… more
Abstract:This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II program develops an instrument capable of measuring micron-scale particles using their weight as the measured parameter. At the instrument's core is a novel microfabricated sensor containing a vibrating microchannel. The target particles are… more
Abstract:We propose to develop a methodology and test and evaluation framework for optimizing the remote capture of multimodal biometrics for automated screening and identification to the practical extent possible while the individuals are on the move, walking through an automated gate or corridor at the… more
Abstract:DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): This proposal is for SBIR Phase I research to determine the design and feasibility of an innovative, new device for advanced locomotion analysis including: ambulation assessment and fall prevention, postural perturbatio
n assessment and activity assessment. It is… more
Abstract:AFrame's proposal to deliver a prototype system for Phase II will improve care for recovering warfighters and lead to easier transitions through the stepdown from hospital and rehabilitation settings to homecare and independence. Using advanced probabilistic reasoning, the system determines a… more
Abstract:Aerosols represent one of the more efficient methods to distribute biological and chemical agents throughout the atmosphere. Small aerosol droplets can be readily inhaled and easily penetrate deep into the lungs where they lodge in bronchial alveoli. Within the alveoli, chemical and biological… more
Abstract:The abrasive, reactive, and ubiquitous nature of lunar regolith created significant and serious problems during the Apollo moon missions.

Abstract:In completing the Phase I SBIR, Agave BioSystems and the Universities Space Research Association, have successfully demonstrated proof of concept for the use of novel carbon nanotube (CNT)-based structures as next generation smart adsorbents for the adsorption and destruction of potentially toxic… more
Abstract:Deployed armed forces often have to rely on water that is produced from decentralized sources, which presents significant difficulties for assuring the water is free of chemical toxicants. Analysis of these water supplies often requires complex instrumentation that is not practical for field use. … more
There are several categories such as “By Agency”, “By Year”, “By State” etc.
Select a checkbox within a category to refine your search results.
Each of your selections is listed in the “Narrow Search Filters” bar. You can uncheck these selections to remove them.
Search for Either Criteria
When you select multiple values within a category, the results will include values that match either of the selections.
For example, selecting “2005” and “2007” in the “By Year” category will display results that include either 2005 OR 2007 in the results.
Narrowing the Search Results
You can refine your search results across categories. To narrow down your results, select multiple values across different categories. The results will only include values that match the selections across the categories.
For example, selecting “2005” in the “By Year” category and “NASA” in the “By Agency” category will only display the results that contain both “2005” AND “NASA” in the results.
